Mery, who is 38 years old, is a hard-working and dedicated woman. Eight years ago she decided to have her own source of income, to which she is very attentive and works arduously. Mery set aside a small space in her home to sell food, offering delicious meals in the afternoons. During the day she takes care of and tends her flock of sheep. Mery accomplishes these activities for the well-being of her three children, who are school-aged and being young children need lots of support and love. The loan that Mery needs is for the purchase of general goods in bulk in order to prepare meal and to feed her sheep. Support Mery's noble casue so she can continue to move forward for the sake of those she loves the most, her children.

Mery, con 38 años de edad es una mujer luchadora y muy empeñosa, hace ocho años que decidió tener su propia fuente de ingreso, para ello es que está muy atenta a trabajar arduamente. Mery acondicionó en su casa un pequeño espacio para la venta de comida, ofrece deliciosos platos por las tardes, y por el día ella se dedica al cuidado de su rebaño de ovejas. Estas actividades las realiza Mery por el bienestar de sus tres hijos que están aún en edad escolar y al estar pequeños necesitan mucho de su apoyo y cariño. El préstamo que necesita Mery es para la compra de abarrotes al por mayor para el preparado de sus platos y de alimento para sus ovejas. Apoya la noble causa de Mery, y a continuar adelante por el bienestar de los seres que más ama, sus hijos.
